nebraska senator bob kerrey and the atlantic's steve clemens. senator, it's always an honor to speak with you. the president today said chuck hagel is an american patriot when he announced the nomination of the former senator from your state to head the pentagon. let's take a listen. >> chuck hagel is the leader that our troops deserve. he is an american patriot. he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. to this day he bears the scars and shrapnel for battles he fought in our game. we see a decorated combat veteran of character and strength. they see one of their own. most importantly, chuck knows war is not an abstraction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> well, senator hagel paid tribute to the men and women in uniform at the announcement today. let's listen to the nominee himself. >> mr. president, i am grateful for this opportunity to serve our country again, and especially its men and women in unifortunatentunately -- unform their families. these are people
steve schmidt. he is a republican senior strategist from the mccain/palin ticket in '08, msnbc analyst. steve, thank you for being here. good to see you. >> good to see you, rachel. happy new year. >> you too. i know you are a supporter of gun rights, steve. i know you are also a political realist. how do you assess the strength of the effort to try to come up with some form of reform agenda after newtown and after tucson? >> look, i think that the ad that you showed is obviously enormously compelling. it's emotional. the whole country was traumatized by this unspeakable tragedy that took place in newtown, and the tragedies that took place before it. and sadly, the tragedies that are going to take place next. and we don't know where those will be. but the nra is a fearsome political lobby. members particularly in the republican party are terrified of being primaried. this issue is often covered through a partisan prism when it should be looked at through a regional prism. if you talk about democrats in the south, in the mountain west, and places like north dakota, and you saw the new s
joins us and steve liesman, our senior economics reporter. you worried, what are you thinking here? >> you know the problem is we're already starting to see the consequences and specifically we saw that in the quarters leading up to the fiscal cliff discussion, and really this is just another reminder, another round reminding the american people and the world just how much of an imbalance this u.s. u.s. economy has become with out-of-control government spending and removing any incentive for businesses to invest in the u.s. economy. these are different conversations. when we talk about the government shutdown as a result of breaching the cliff, this is on obligations already made, dollars already spent. the conversation that we need to have or include here is reining in future spending which is what the republicans are trying to do at this point. >> what do you think, steve? have we already seen damage to the economy with all this uncertainty and questions surrounding the debt ceiling and the fiscal cliff, or is there a point that you believe the debt ceiling fight damages the econ
as the main player? >> steve liesman and rick santelli tell us what they think it all means. steve, you first. you recently did, as you know that great interview with tim geithner right here on the "closing bell." how well do you know lew? >> not as well. he was at omb for a brief time, a couple years in this administration, his second go-round there. look, we're learning more about him, and i don't think there's very much mystery here. he would be picked for the job because he's a budget expert, and that also he's a loyalist inside the obama administration and in a place that values loyalty like a lot of white houses, and the question becomes does he have other critical qualifications that say wall street or the international banking and financial system would require, with the big question being, you know, if we were at a place where there was another financial crisis, how well would jack lew, as did robert ruben, hank paulsen and tim geithner do to instill confidence? >> steve, you were right on the money with the jack lew prediction. you and i had this conversation, but i just wonder, you
fed treasury and others presented their points. robert steve miller said the board fulfilled its fiduciary duty and the board reject it had entirely meaning it won't pursue the claims on its own or allowing greenberg international to pursue the claims in aidentifying's name. the ceo from 1967 until 2005, greenberg's long criticized the government's handling of aig during the financial crisis. his term filed the suit on behalf of other aig shareholders, the suit claiming, among other things, the firm's investors weren't properly compensated for the 80% stake the company took as collateral for the rescue packaged back in 2008. calls for clarification on the decision were not delivered. back to you. >> joining me right now in an exclusive interview, ceo benmosche. thanks for joining us. >> thank you, maria. >> very important time for the company and shareholders are out there watching this. first off i've got to say reading the court of public opinion, lots of headlines. now we've got a lawsuit against the government. the government bailed out this company. why did you even look at
to do. tim cook didn't come with the training. steve jobs was the brand marketing expert at apple. tim cook is logistics guy. we look at tim, how did he heck did he get to be ceo of anything let alone the most powerful company in tech? i think nature here, apple is looking across at samsung, competing hard with samsung and starting to adopt sam sung's policies and practices and samsung is a broadband, more of a value brand and segment. melissa: looking right now, the market share, what we've seen and it has just been a huge jump. in 2011, samsung's market share was 22% to apple's 13. if you look what happened in 2012, samsung has jumped all the way to 31%, a huge jump. another 10%. meanwhile apple just ticked up two points, to 15. seems like samsung is really eating their lunch and apple should go back to what has worked for them, instead of trying to do this other thing, right? maybe they can't? maybe they're out of ideas? their trademark was amazing innovation. is that gone with steve jobs? >> well, what steve wozniak beliefs, when steve jobs passed a lot of people that created innov

like this before. which one is it? joining us now is steve karnaky, host of "the cycle." steve, it's good to see you. empty threats? or are we in uncharted obstruction territory? >> i don't think it's uncharted yet. i'm curious to see how it plays out. i think in terms of the republicans unifying in opposition, it's more likely in the case of hagel than lew, but we'll see how that plays out. i don't pick up yet in either case on the threat of what could kill either of these nominations that would be a filibuster there is a sense in hagel, even if he had all the republicans, all 45 of them say they are against him, there will be still be up or down. so maybe 55-45, maybe one democrat will peel off. the longer term threat here is this. what we've already experienced in the last four years is that the republicans in some very sort of troubling ways have changed the behavior enormous for congressional parties. you look at how they have treated the debt ceiling. they tried to claim that as a legitimate bargaining tool. you look what the senate republicans have down with the filibuster,
us along with brian is peter anderson of congress asset management and our own steve leisman and rick santelli. you think it's going to be another good year of gains. target on the s&p 1575. defend it. >> well, we do. i'll remind everyone we were at 1420 last year. we base all of our analysis on fundamentals. >> you were off by a point. >> i'm sorry. >> a whole point. >> seriously. >> i'm sorry. but we think the fundamental condition of u.s. stocks remains very strong. if you take a look at the balance sheet strength, earning stability. fourth quarter earnings i think was a surprise to the upside. companies have been conservative of all these great things. no that we're done with this fiscal cliff situation, i think we do have a bit of wind behind our sails. however, we don't think that 2013 will be as strong as 2012 given the fact that so many people were underexposed stocks in 2012. we've had this kind of natural rotation back in. i think 2013 will be positive. >> but are we really done is the question. we've got the debt ceiling debt bait coming. peter, what's your take? >> well, i
wall street journal"'s steve moore. steve, a disturbing series of events, to put it mildly. >> no question about it, neil. and, look, we have a three-branch system of government in washington. the president is the chief of the executive branch, that means the president doesn't make the laws, he executes the laws that congress passes. and, you know, i'm in austin, texas, today. here in texas everybody's been talking about this. what is with all these executive orders? what gives the president the authority to do this? and the one that, you know, i'm most interested in, obviously, is whether the president will try to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling without approval of congress. and that is the scuttlebutt right now in washington, that the president is simply going to do it whether congress authorizes that extension or not. neil: you know, sabrina, it's odd that this is occurring the same week we saw the movie "lincoln" honored with 12 oscar nods. of course, a lot of people point to the fact that abraham lincoln, you know, habeas corpus went way after and way beyond what c

be confirmed pretty easily. even though he has tough questioning at confirmation. >> let's bring in steve liesman. he is low drama, low confrontation. he doesn't have wall street regulatory. who is lew? >> i think the first theng i will do is begin the series of puns beginning with jack lew's name. let me say more about jack lew, we call this one, you don't know jack. >> of course you do. >> this is a financial education. beginning with harvard and georgetown. but that never disqualified anybody. tip o'neill 93 and '94, special to president clinton. and that's what john harwood was talking about. incredible expertise with the budget. moving on in 2006, new york university as executive advice president. then a stint at citigroup. first at global wealth management and next in a controversy by the way that comes up with a large bonus he got while citigroup was getting tart money. finally reenter the administration. i'm sure the administration will make a cot of, as secretary in charge of of resource management. and second stint of omb. then white house chief of staff to the present. let's lo
plan. steve liesman is here on what you are hearing. how concerned are they? >> there is concern and it takes two forms, sue. two separate fault lines that developed over the fed. you are -- well, that the easy one. the economy meeting what we call the substantial improvement in labor market quicker than others do. they are worried about substantial group in the balance sheet and adjusting it once they stave off inflation. here is what they said about three different folks with the fed. another group a few others say we need considerable policy. that is qe. but they frnt telling us how long it gez on for. this other group called several others that say it is appropriate to slow or stop purchases well before the end of 2013. they site concerns about financial stability or the size of the balance sheet. here is what i understood to be some of those concerns. big balance sheet obviously could lead to inflation. they could be at a loss or make payments to the bank. as interest rates go up, principal gez down. payment to banks would come from interest on reserve in order to sequester
could that impact the man who is now nominated to succeed tim geithner? steve, good morning. >> thanks, carl. first of all, just to what you were talking about earlier, we understand geithner's going to hang out until january 25th in the treasury, giving jack lew to confirm and i guess perfect his signature. let's see what we've learned, what does he leave for jack lew. he got the stress test done. actually, that's not correct there. let's move away from that. what we're talking about here is the -- let me go to my notes. the stimulus was done -- but sustained growth was not. frank dod basel iii was not done. aig also done. what is the geithner model? what is the geithner doctrine? i think you can say like this, overwhelming government force when it's clear it's needed. b in a crisis, spend, regulate and guarantee and do it with conviction. let's talk about one of the things left over from the geithner years, which is going to be the issue of debt and deficit. i think you would say there was some accomplishment when it came to getting some of these deals in place. but ultimately, he pr

with iran. steve hayes in the weekly standard wrote nothing something in his blog this week, which i will put on the screen. >> chuck hagel said nothing as far off the table but one that believe us in the prospects for negotiation. we have been ready to negotiate under the right set of circumstances with iran for the last several years with our friends and allies so, force is the table but i'm glad we have people like the president and like chuck hagel who will be very careful when you start throwing around the terms -- >> he says it's not feasible. do you agree it is not feasible. >> what is the not feasible? >> military option? >>> military option is always feasible, you tell me what the option is. are we going to blow up tehran or go after facilities that might be well pro-toerktd hidden? and i think bob gates, the previous secretary of defense, who pointed out the difficulty of striking these places is a real one. so any military option is feasible in terms of dropping bombs but what is the result of that military attack? with respect to the revolutionary guard, he has reasons fo
to use a term another way. steve king introduced a bill in 2011 to clarify in his words the 14th amendment. the amendment grants citizenship to anyone born -- it was written after the civil war for african-americans obviously. well, king argued tfers not meant to including babies of illegal immigrants. take a look. >> anchor babies are babies that are born in the united states to an illegal mother and the practice over the years has been to grant automatic citizenship to babies born on u.s. soil. they sneak into the united states many of them for the purposes of having the baby, they get the little birth certificate with their little feet prints on there, and then they stay here or go back to their home country and wait until that child comes of age and then that child, they use that child to apply to bring in the family, the nuclear family, then the extended family. and it's out of control. >> you might expect something like that from the man who questioned whether barack obama's mom might have sent his birth announcement by telegram from kenya. king is at it again with anchor b
geithner. steve liesman joins us now. he has a look at exactly what lew will be left with once mr. geithner leaves town. >> no easier job now. treasury sect job was a tough job to begin with and today's circumstances, this post financial crisis world, a tougher job yet. let's go through some of the things that we know and some things we don't know. the debt ceiling and more among the jobs here, negotiate a debt ceiling and sequester deal with congress, or if you don't do that figure out thousand run the government without debt. an interesting job. also on that agenda, fixing long term entitlements. as well as the broader thing which geithner has been working on, but hasn't really pulled the trigger on, corporate and individual tax reform. let's broaden it out because there's a local other area especially in the wake of the financial crisis. the global finance job. who is the treasury secretary? he's the guy you need to stand up during the next meltdown. second thing, dodd-frank remains out there, unfinished regulations. basil 3. fannie mae and freddie mac as well as more on too big to fail.
. >> that's a really good depression. so it's good, but i don't know what it means. >>> coming up, why steve cohen's sap capital could be bracing from the big hour of squawk. you can't afford to miss this next deal in congress. it's going hit your take home pay line by line. it's more money than you might have thought coming up at 7:00 eastern time. what are you doing? nothing. are you stealing our daughter's school supplies and taking them to work? no, i was just looking for my stapler and my... this thing. i save money by using fedex ground and buy my own supplies. that's a great idea. i'm going to go... we got clients in today. [ male announcer ] save on ground shipping at fedex office. >>> welcome back to "squawk box" this morning. u.s. equities at this hour, we have red arrows. dow off about 11 points this morning. the nasdaq off 1.5 points. s&p 500 marginally off about a point this morning. sap capital telling business employees and parter ners it's bracing for employee withdraw. the journal says this is amid intense regulatory scrutiny of alleged insider trading at sac. worth noting,
we have found a way it be able to run automobiles with water, that was the hope of steve jobs. they run on water and we've got that in q2. i'm taking numbers down. that's where we are right now, the mind-set of apple is so horrible, that i feel like taking a big bag of macintoshs and smashing them. >> if this story had come out a year ago, it would have been seen as leading a way in the emerging market play. this is exactly what they needed to do. >> 40 billion more apps, china taking over the world, nokia destroyed. now it's like, a new phone, you know, wow. >> the context is a different context this year than a year ago. you look at the third-quarter share loss. 14.6% down from 23% a year ago. you look at samsung's growth, and samsung at 31% of worldwide shipments, from 8.8%. so we're seeing these two sort of cross paths here with samsung on the upswing, samsung yesterday reporting a record year, and apple on the down side. >> how long is tim cook going to subsidize its biggest enemy, samsung, and not go to taiwan semiconductors? do something about this south korean invasion
. hold on. and then the story i read on the front page of the wall street journal, steve, it did make the arrangement that he did run the two divisions, one of which got into serious trouble in 2007, 2008. he wasn't the guy making the investment decisions that really caused such severe heartburn. i red read that in the wall street journal today. >> well, he was in charge of the operation and it lost money. whether he was making specific calls on investments, don't know. but you don't look at that reference and say, gee, this really makes him qualified to be the treasury secretary for the united states. >> all right. let's let ali weigh in. >> steve, good to see you. i'm not sure anyone who would nominate for treasury secretary that the editorial of the wall street editorial would but who knows. your history is one of a tax fighter. you've been a tax fighter forever. you're founder of the club for growth. >> right. >> you've got the same dna as grover norquist and pat toomey and guys like this. jack lew understands budgets. the fact of the matter is, this is a guy that can speak the ri
. but it is entirely possible that the house of representatives will approve a bill by representative steve stockman to do away with the gun-free school zones. >> and you would be happy with that? >> you are a good guesser yes, sir. >> where are they going to put them? >> well, when people carry a concealed firearm one doesn't know for sure and the element of surprise remains with the person concealed. which means that somebody thinking of doing something horrible doesn't know which person or persons might be able to arrest him. to stop him, and that is why our jurisdictions that have easy access to concealed carry firearms enjoy lower murder rates than say the gun control mecca of chicago, which does better than one murder a day. >> you are a very experienced man in your field. you have run your operation for a long time and people take you you are a leading member in the gun rights lobby. i'm going to give you one more chance before we finish to say how many gun murders you believed were in england in 2011. >> more important than the number of murders, and it doesn't matter how a murder is committ
seven times longer than the victims of katrina waited for federal aid. >> above politics. steve sweeney, a democrat, blasted christie recently saying -- i guess he prayed a lot and got lucky a storm came. i know you apologized for that comment, but do you stand by your sentiment that the governor has been using the storm for his own gain? >> not for political gain, but to hide his record in new jersey. he said i'm going to wipe the slate clean now because of the storm. before the storm hit, we had 9.6% unemployment. we had the second highest foreclosure rate in the nation behind florida. our poverty rate has increased 3%. you don't get to wipe the slate clean, governor and quite honestly, if this is your jobs package, it's not a good jobs package. the governor wants to paint a different state than what's going on. >> one thing i have to ask you about this is post crisis bumps happen. as distasteful as it may be, they do happen. it happened to rudy giuliani after 9/11 and president bush. to president obama after superstorm sandy, too. right? maybe the reality of it is good leaders shine
. therefore, the outlook for qe is steve liesman. who we should note, of course, was hobnobbing with a lot of economists last week. >> simon, thanks. what i've been able to figure out is there are actually two separate fault lines that have developed over at the fed over how much quantitative easing to do this year. the first one is the easy one. some officials seeing the economy meeting the labor market before others. and look at this chart of the fed unemployment rate forecast for 2013. it shows those divisions really not that extreme. pretty solid majority. 16 of 19 members. they see the unemployment remain above 7.4% this year. that's probably enough to just fight qe for the full year. the more complicated split is among those who are worried about growth in the balance sheet and the fallout from trying to adjust it once the economy picks up. let's take a look at what the minutes said. a few members of the fed are in favor of asset purchases to the end of 2013. a few others, they would like to see considerable policy accommodation, but no specific time frame or total on the amount. it'

economics reporter steve liesman who joins us a little background. you going to give us a little drama, a little -- >> yeah, there seem to be at least two separate fault lines, andrew, at the fed over how much quantitative easing to do this year. the first one is the easy one. that's over the economic outlook. some officials see the economy meeting that test of substantial improvement in the labor market earlier than others do. that's the easy one. the more complicated split is among those who may or may not see the economy improving, but they're worried about growth in the balance sheet. i want to give you, from the minutes, the divisions at the fed. a few members of the fed say asset purchases are warranted until the end of 2013. a few others, we need considerable policy accommodation but give no specific time frame or total. they're probably the ones who are more oriented towards substantial improvement in the labor market. it's this last group that seems to be the new group. others, several others, they say it's appropriate to slow or to stop purchases well before the end of 2013,

put in, one by representative steve stockman, outside of how often that would remove the gun-free zones that have been so much like a magnet to invite mass murderers into zones where they know nobody else will be able to shoot back. and, that, i think, is where the debate is likely to shift. are we really better off when we say no defense is a good defense? >> chris: i want to put up an ad gun control advocates have start running, against democratic senator -- new senator heidi hidecamp of north dakota after she said some of the president's ideas about gun control are extreme. mr. pratt, you see the ad there. will it work? can ms. camden and her allies, and they've suggested they can drive a wedge between people like you and the heads of the nra, and some of their members may not be as hard-line as you guys are on gun controls? >> well, i think the senator from north dakota is reflecting the views of the people that sent her to washington. so i don't think there is much room to drive any wedge, i think she is representing them faithfully and it is noteworthy that a democrat w
in mainland china. they could have hundreds. why if they don't underdevelop that? >> i think under steve jobs, apple was a very angelo sent rick company. they really focused on first getting all their product into the united states and into the other english-speaking countries. apple has been very slow at localizing itunes and other languages like chinese or korean because they've just focused so much on the united states. but i think it's clear under tim cook that apple has to expand its horizons and can't look at china and other nations as secondary nations because they're going to emerge from the secondary markets. people still love the product. you'll see that chinese woman was in new hampshire a couple weeks ago and was tasered because she was trying to bring so many iphones back to china to sell or give to friends. they can't get product into the country fast enough. >> they need to deal with china mobile. how likely is that? >> i don't think it's that likely. probably 5%, 10% in the next five months. unlike other markets, apple is dominant. apple, they go into the united states, they c
